Yes, our lender (GE) is throwing lots of obstacles in the way at the moment. They have the facility to carry out the UK credit check on Experian and Equifax, I have seen it on my credit report!! After initially agreeing the amount, it was revised, revised again and then revised some more before being approved subject to valuation. All this has taken since 8th August so far!
All the other banks asked for copies of a recent credit report (within 3 months).
